A Beginner’s Guide To: Dream Theater

In lieu of the hype for Dream Theater‘s new album ‘The Astonishing’ and our taste of the song ‘The Gift of Music’, I’ve decided to celebrate 30 years of DT history with a ‘Beginners Guide to Dream Theater‘ – a flowchart for any budding proghead to easily navigate through their expansive discography at their own leisure.


WARNING – this infographic is both satirical and based on my own opinion, so please take it with a pinch of salt – it’s just some lighthearted fun. Hell, I made it in MSPaint, it’s hardly gospel. Although if you have your own flowcharts you’d like to share, satire or not, put them in the comments below!

However, in future I would like to produce some serious, informative flowcharts for lesser known prog bands to try and urge you guys to get into some of our team’s well loved artists, and to bring some fresh, original content to the page which further encourages discussion. This is Prog Talk, after all.

  1. Hello Cerpin,
    Haha, well, I did get the humor, because basically I’m an old fart :p.
    I hope you don’t mind but I used both DT charts you created in the Dream Theater “segment” of my
    essay on Prog Metal (which I revamped in Feb. of 2017).
    Like you, I hope to shed some light on the more obscure as well, and hope that the layman along with the newer or older fans will also enjoy my personal journey (and take my “opinions” with a bit of salt) and history.
    I hope you all enjoy 🙂 . . .
    PrOck On \m/.
